This chapter provides information about the prevalence of youth mental health issues, and identifies student risk and protective factors. In addition, the solution-focused counseling approach is compared with traditional problem-focused counseling approaches. Benefits of using the solution-focused approach in schools are identified. A case study is also included in this chapter. The case study offers school-based mental health practitioners with detailed steps on how to recognize and respond to students’ suicide ideation from a solution-focused perspective. This solution-focused intervention is designed to build hope, to empower the student, and to encourage more solution-building activities.
